Jan 27 2009 - Justice!

Today on the show, we discussed The Towns of Spruce Grove vs Stony Plain, a listener texted us and said not great things about Stony, and NO ONE CAME TO ITS DEFENCE. Tragic! We also discussed the Upcoming Asian Hockey League Playoffs, the 'Watchmen', and...i just realized...WE FORGOT THE FORTUNE COOKIE. Wow I apologize. We'll do TWO Next week just to make up, howzat?

Don't Vote Liberal: Vote DOOM

So it would appear that Albertans hate the Liberal Party so much, or at least the name Liberal ( Many folks are still a bit testy about something with the letters "N-E-P" in them) that the Liberal Party of Alberta is actually considering changing its name.  We here at Makin Whoopee think this is a great idea, and although Textbot chuckles at something so 'Frivolous' ( since its only a matter of time before the machines rise up and take over anyway), We would like to suggest to the Liberal Party that they change their name to: THE PARTY OF DOOM. It has a nice ring, would look pretty snazzy on a poster, and would be a refreshing change to all the phony optimism around elections anyway. 

Remember, the next time you cast your ballot; Vote for Alberta: VOTE FOR DOOM!!!



No no NO..This is not some Dire Warning about My 'SPACE FLU'. I am FULLY Recovered, which only proves my Theory that SICK DAYS can cure everything, and we should all have like 34 of them each and every year! Put THAT in your Bailout Package 'Arper! HA!

NO this is just a little heads up that this weekend when i go and grab the last two episodes to make then available for Podcast, i will be tinkering with the RSS Feed: Thats the thingy that sends the new shoes to your iTunes and other nifty players! I'll post again when i tinker with it, so  all you podcast fans...yes...BOTH OF YOU, can go in and re subsribe with the new link!

ALSO we're workin on something special for the Asian Hockey League Playoffs, which are RIGHT Around the Corner! Stay Tuned....



Jan 20 2009 - Juan Solo


Colin is sitting today out with some kind of space flu, so I'm all alone in this creepy basement station, eyes peeled to the security monitor watching for any sign of zombie. There is a BBC program on with a man who thinks we are destined to conquer space. Rad?

Tuesday Morning Fortune Cookie:

Pursue Your Wishes Aggressively

Whoa, I don't think that is a very nice fortune...maybe "assertively" would be better advice.



We, at Makin Whoopee, are saddened by the News that Riccardo Montalban, aka, 'Khan' ...as in "Wrath of Khan: Star Trek Numero Deux", has beamed up to the great beyond. Now we're a little insulted that he is referred to as the actor from 'Fantasy Island'. I mean really, what was more important to society and civilization as a whole: Being on the show with the little dude with Planes? Or driving Captain Kirk into the VICE GRIP OF INSANITY?? If you have a brain, you will say the latter.

Regardless, Farewell Riccardo: May you live forever in our Star Trek VHS Box Sets.

666 Songs: Goodbye George Dubya!

We got word from the CJSR Mothership that the folks over at Liquidchatter ( Another fine CJSR Program) are compiling a list of ' So Long, See Ya Later' type songs, for your favorite out going American President: Mr. George Walker Texas Ranger Bush. They Want YOUR suggestions too! So feel free to post them on our blog, their blog, OR their groovy little facebook group, which you can find here.

Personally, I am saddened by Dubya leaving, as this means i won't be able to write any more 'George W Bush - See Magazine' Ads. *Sniff*. So my pick for the song list is 'Goodbye' by the Spice Girls.

Oh Yeah, and latest Episode of 'Makin Whoopee' will be online tomorrow!



Ohhhhh Happy Anniversary!

JANUARY 7TH, 2009 is CJSR's 25th Anniversary, So what better way to Celebrate then with your friends and mine: THE FLINTSONES! Warning: This song will be in your head all day!

Happy Anniversary CJSR! Here's to 25 more Eclectic and often zany Years!

Jan 5 2009 - Lets Celebrate The New Year with a 3 Quarter Show!

So all went well on the Live Radio version of the Show this week, however when i went to compile the MP3's to make the Podcast Version, we lost the last 30 minutes of the 8 o'clock hour!  Danged Computers! This was much much easier when we made Podcasts out of max cyclinders.

Oh Mad Props to Gentry at Subway who phoned in not only once, but twice!

See You in Hell Catwoman!!!

A little while back, we darn near had a hissyfit when we found out this goofy site was ranked 7th on Google for all things "Makin Whoopee". Well we've been keeping an eye on it since then, and depending when, and how you Google, we show up anywhere from 4th to 5th spot.  WHAT is perfectly clear, is our accent to the top of the Google listings seems to be blocked by a Youtube Video of Michelle Pfiefer performing the 'Makin Whoopee Song' from some movie. 

Michelle, this is your warning. Either move out of our way or be moved!!!

(Oh and by the way Michelle, we really have nothing against you. In fact, we kinda like you! Happy New Year to you!)
